The_Civil_Newtonian 1 year, 3 months ago on Newton Sheriff's Office warns telephone threats of jail is a scam

Sounds as if this bindle is a wee bit skillful at blag! Find him, arrest him, and convict him. Dare say a fare sentence might be twelve months to serve in the Newton Hilton OR no time served with12 months probation for working in the County Collections Office. As we say in the old country, this is one way to turn dead Mackerel into tasty Fish 'N Chips.

Woah?, so we've been searching for the lost lassie and like the luck o' the Irish she turns up and that's it? I'd say there was a wee donkey in the woodpile!

Aye, you dare say after all this blimey rubbish the beastly bloke turned out to be just some bog-standard Joe? I'd dare say the poor chap must be completely mental or else had to take the mickey in a bad sort of way. All in the land knows when the Bobby points his blues and twos it don't mean to sod off!. Now look at the bad tickety-boo this bloody wanker and his trove of slappers are in!

The_Civil_Newtonian 1 year, 7 months ago on Craig upholds LB Recycling bid

Coming on the heels of having accepted a bid from a lawn care company that wasn't a legal business, I am beginning to question the County BOCs ethical standards. The Lawn Care bid must be rebid. This is why binder fees are required of bidders and are retained if the rules aren't followed. We taxpayers will bear the cost of the additional time and moeny to do this.

The scrap metal "nested bid" cannot be accepted and should be denied. What if Oconee metals has also included a statement, "...or 5% more than the highest bid"? They had the highest bid. I think Oconee should sue and once again we tazpayers will bear the cost of this action. Perhaps the commissioners might consider better counsel in the future, or else the voters of this great County should strive for better Commissioners?

I dare say the State would run afoul with the Feds if this limiting legislation was so enacted. These are their voters you understand. This entitlement is only the iceberg's tip. Good thing you working blokes don't know about all the other myriad of entitlements...

The_Civil_Newtonian 1 year, 8 months ago on Newton Sheriff's Office makes arrest in auto, farm equipment theft

I'd chance to say GOOD JOB to the VICTIM in this case. Poor bloke and wife sound like they were left to conduct their own investigation. Are Authorities, regardless of the County, checking these recycle operations for incoming stolen items regularly???

State taxes indeed are nothing to take lightly. They can actually be more than Federal taxes. But why, prey tell is the government, even involved in such affairs?

The support from State and local governments plus other entities will be returned ten fold or better in the long run for the community. You have to spend money to make money. Wastewater treatment is a viable need. Let's just make sure other people's unrelated pet projects don't mysteriously end up in the mix under the guise they are needed to acquire and retain Baxter.

The_Civil_Newtonian 2 years ago on Covington Council to consider nighttime filming policy

The good that this filming brings far outweighs a small and very temporary inconvenience for some residential people. Why must this come to laws and ordinances?
